Marlon, that is nice.

That intro scene was very nice!

It looks like it will be a really good movie. I liked Junipero(?) when you showed that before.

The blue coloring in that forest looked sweet. Very nicely done.

Now time for the questions:
What is your budget for this film?
What do you do for the lighting in the forest-type areas?
How do you find the forest-type areas?
Did you make it look blue in post, or did you use a filter?
And do I have any other questions? -- Nope! :-D

Thanks for posting this here. I hope you are having a lot of fun making it!

1. Well I spent $3500 for the camera and the $500 on costumes. Does the camera count? Maybe another couple hundred on tapes and feeding my actors/actress.

2. All natural lighting.

3. San Francisco is full of parks that look like forests :)

4. Colors all done in post.

Wow! All natural lighting! Hard to believe on the inside shots as their was good modeling on the actors faces. Did you use any add on lenses? You achieved a nice shallow depth of field. One more question... which mode did you use, 60i or 24f or 30f? Enough with the questions... really nice work!

I used a Redrock M2. Shot all on 24f.

You mean in-camera? Custom setting for each location.

I'm look specifically at the shot of the male character as he lays his head down on the table - and then his girlfriend calls out for him - you got a very nice look there

It looks quite well graded - and i mean considering using one of the lower end HD cams - i was extremly impressed.

Thanks, but I'm more interested in what people thought about the storytelling... did it make you want to watch the rest of the movie?
